Moonlight Dreams

Well here are the Arctic Wolf Cubs finished I think, unless I see something that needs to be done.  The title prior to the moon being added, which by the way was a suggestion by my partner, has gone from Two's Company to Moonlight Dreams with this title given to me by a friend.  At times it is harder to come up with a Title than doing the actual work lol.

A few things.

I have often been asked for cards featuring my scratchwork and after making many enquiries over the past 12 months or so, I have finally been given a contact where I recently had a few printed and I am very happy with the result - I will also have the lion, raccoon and jaguar cub on display with the original artworks next month at a gallery and these cards are already in the celophane sleeves so not showing up as well as the other four.  If anyone is interested in the cards I can be contacted on

I have made some progress on "Uninvited Guest" with just a little more to do on the vase, unfortunately I have become a little bored with this one so have put it aside for the time being and started on a 12" x 16" board of 3 Arctic wolf cubs.

The Arctic wolf cubs below, not sure about a title yet but "Two's Company" comes to mind.

Brisbane EKKA

This time every year in August, the Royal National Brisbane Exhibition is held, it is known as the EKKA by us locals. I entered a couple of my scratchboards into the art section and also two of my painted pieces into the decorative painting category. I had no luck with the scratchboards but received 2nd place in "Australian Novelty" and "Decorative Painting Any Style". The original designs of "Digger" and "The Last Stitch" for the painted pieces are by Jan McCraw of Ladybug Creations.

United Guest.

I'm still working on this board although not spending as much time on it as I should therefore I still have quite a way to go.
